Below, check out an exclusive first look at poster art for Denis Henry Hennelly upcoming film GOODBYE WORLD courtesy of Comingsoon.net. The film, starring Kerry Bishé, Caroline Dhavernas, Adrian Grenier, Gaby Hoffmann, Ben McKenzie, Scott Mescudi, Mark Webber will hit theaters and On Demand on April 4th.
In the film, James and Lily live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community.
The unexpected reunion–abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed–is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order.
Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area.
“Southland” star Ben McKenzie will co-star with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek in the indie comedy “How to Make Love Like an Englishman.”
Tom Vaughan is set to direct with Matthew Newman penning the script.
Story follows a University of Cambridge professor who finds a woman who forces him to reevaluate his life of hedonistic excess. The twist is that this comes after he gets her grad student stepsister pregnant.
Richard B. Lewis, Beau St. Clair and Kevin Frakes will produce as part of a co-production between Palmstar Media Capital, Southpaw Entertainment, Irish DreamTime and Envision.
McKenzie has done a good job over his career of balancing film and television and looks to stay busy on both following the end of his TV show “Southland.” He recently signed a talent deal with Warner Bros. TV that includes a development component which should keep him busy for years to come.
He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and PJ Shapiro.
The next animated feature from DC Entertainment and Warner Premiere will be the adaption of the acclaimed Batman story from Frank Miller, with Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku and Katee Sackhoff lending their voices to the main characters.
Batman: Year One — otherwise known simply as Year One — is a 1987 comic book story arc written by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli. The story finds a young Bruce Wayne who has spent his adolescence and early adulthood traveling the world so he could hone his body and mind into the perfect fighting and investigative machine. But now as he returns to Gotham City, he must find a way to focus his passion and bring justice to his city.
Retracing Batman’s first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante, we watch as he chooses a guise of a giant bat, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon, inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a corrupt political system that infests Gotham.
Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston will voice Jim Gordon, while Ben McKenzie is Bruce Wayne/Batman. Dollhouse’s Eliza Dushku will play Catwoman, and fan-favorite actress Katie Sackhoff will voice Detective Sarah Essen, a love interest to Gordon. Alex Rocco has also been announced to be playing crime lord Carmine Falcone.
Bruce Timm previously confirmed that a Catwoman short would be attached to the feature. Batman: Year One is directed by Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu and scribed by Tab Murphy. The animated film will be rated PG-13 and is due out in this fall but will make it’s world premiere at the San Diego Comic-Con in July.
Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku and Katee Sackhoff have been tapped to star as the voices in Batman: Year One, the adaptation of the Frank Miller comic book classic from Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation.
Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu are directing the movie, the 12th entry in the successful series of DC universe animated originals. Tab Murphy wrote the script.
The feature adapts the landmark four-issue story written by Miller and drawn by David Mazzucchelli that first appeared in 1987 on the heels of Miller’s seminal work, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Those tomes, along with The Watchmen, helped elevate the comics medium, changing the public’s perception of the art form and influencing Hollywood writers and artists to this day.
Actor Ben McKenzie, best known for his TV roles in “The OC” and more recently “Southland” is co-starring in the LA stage production of the Tennessee Williams’ classic “The Glass Menagerie.” Ben stops by “Good Day LA” to talk about the production.
